What’s life like in this fast-paced world – breaking news, push-notifications and a flood of media images, a world that’s constantly overtaken by itself. What remains of it?
Elmar Karla’s answer is one of nuances and subtlety. The creation of a cautiously individual aesthetic that freezes images, glances and situations – moods captured in colour. He preserves them in illustrations, murals, sculptures, colourful and yet thoughtful constructions – and gives our age time to think.
CREATE YOUR OWN GOD
God, the gods – they have lost their nimbus; ascent as fast as descent and forgetting. CREATE YOUR OWN GOD, the installation by Elmar Karla, critically and playfully deals with gods and their worldly counterparts in our modern age. It can and should be examined, changed and adapted by the viewers – for their own God and the role they are given in their own lives.
